Early Spring 1965 — Continued Construction Progress on Hackett Boulevard

Here is another set of unlabeled slides from the St. Paul’s archives, with nice views of the progress of construction. The slides were processed in April 1965, but there are no leaves on the trees and there may be a touch of snow on the nave roof, so the photographs may have bee taken a bit earlier.

First a good shot of most of the site, though only a bit of the chapel shows on the left side. This was taken from what is now the parking lot of Albany Medical Center’s South Clinical Campus, then Child’s Hospital. Was this still open land at that time? It seems not to have been paved.

Next, two dramatic shots of the west end of the nave, almost complete.

And finally, more detail of the nave construction, with all of the temporary supports still in place.
